Stand by to get riled up. This video from John Stossel's show last night, Illegal Everything, features shocking stories about crazy American laws, and also a great Joel Salatin interview.
- The part about the California health food store raid at Rawsome Foods begins around 16:50 with this statement, “Who decides what you eat? You? Turns out, no.”
- I thought John Stossel did a great job exposing this kind of bull, but his statement about drinking unpasteurized milk being “ridiculous” made me want to slam the screen. He made it very clear how uninformed he is on this issue. I wonder if he ever eats peanut butter, salads, or raw broccoli, as these are just as risky as raw milk. (Read more posts about raw milk, including info on safety issues.)
- Joel Salatin's part begins at about 18:55: “When a government gets between my lips and my throat, I call that an invasion of privacy!” My favorite Joel Salatin statement: “Life is risky, you can die from it! Ultimately you and I should get to choose our risk.”
- Note: I turned it off at 27:50 where the story began about whether or not it should be legal to sell sex.
